Diagnostic delay of gynaecological cancer in women with postmenopausal bleeding
CONCLUSIONS: We found a remarkable delay not complying with the intentions of national guidelines with respect to final diagnostics of endometrial cancer. Vacuum aspirator is a frequently used diagnostic tool, but has shortcomings in relation to the success rate of the procedure and insufficient sampling. Gynaecological cancer was found at a rate of 3-5% as reported by other Danish studies. Because of the limitations associated with a one-step diagnostic procedure with vabrasio, attention to follow-up may reduce diagnostic delay.FUNDING: none.TRIAL REGISTRATION: This study was registered with the Region of South Denmark (n...
